The Members’ Conference In our number of 15 August, Brian Clancy expressed dismay at what he saw as the rather supine lack of interest among members of our Institution in the failure of support for the conference arranged to discuss the role of the Institution and matters of general interest to the profession of structural engineering. He considered that the projected cost to those attending should not have been sufficient to have deterred an adequate response. Mr D. J. Pearce of Cheadle, Cheshire, offers a differing view: I cannot blame Brian Clancy for his page of bellyaching regarding the proposed Memcon. It is sad, and certainly not in the interests of the Institution or its members, that it did not take place. However, he may have missed the target in blaming the membership rather than the elected and non-elected representatives of the Institution. Verulam
